This race ushered in the time of year all runners in the South crave for- FALL!
Actually held on the first day of Fall this run was earlier that previous ones and the temps stayed in the low 70s during the race. Bill, Christy and I all got there to watch the balloons air up before the 5K began 🙂
The run was well laid out and I finished with 51:30 just a minute and half shy of my best record! I was very happy to see that. it meant the speed training I have been adding to the runs is paying off.
Forget Zombies! We have attacking air balloons!
The gang and I are planning to keep this race as a standard next year and if things go well in another year or two we all will be racing in the Half marathon also available at the Balloon Fest! 😀
